Push-ups:16 times
Walking:40+40+40=120 minutes
Standing on one foot :10 minutes each
Cigarettes:0
jogging on the spot :0 minutes


Five years and 113 days in a row have passed since I overcame a bad habit of smoking.
I was able to keep 16-time push-ups for the eighth successive day and
more than 12-time push-ups for the sixteenth straight day.

Most of the cherry trees along a path on my way to the workplace has
begun blooming and they have made the scenery completely changed.
Their beauty always makes me feel spring has finally come.
I'm afraid that I cannot go somewhere to enjoy them today, and I have
no choice but to wait for Sunday.

I have succeeded in preventing myself from smoking for five years and 112 days in a row.
I also was able to keep over 12-time push-ups for the fifteenth consecutive day
including the latest seven days of 16-time push-ups.

I've found that about 30% of the cherry blossoms on my way to the workplace have opened.
I think the best time of them will be this weekend and I have to change my plan
to enjoy them from this Thursday to Sunday.
Weather officials say the weather on Sunday will be, unfortunately, cloudy.
But it's absolutely better than rainy.

Push-ups:16 times
Walking:60 minutes
Standing on one foot :11 minutes each
Cigarettes:0
jogging on the spot :0 minutes


I was able to keep no-smoking for five years and 111 days in a row.
I also was able to keep 16-time push-ups for the sixth successive day and
more than 12 times of them for the fourteenth straight day.

Actually, I feel spring warmth has come here in Nagoya but I'm afraid that
it's highly unlikely that cherry blossoms along the Yamazaki Gawa riverside
will be in full bloom on my holiday of this Thursday.
Instead, I may have one chance on Sunday but it's highly likely that
the best time of the flowers will have passed.
Anyway, that's also one of the aspects in life.
I may have made too much of the blossoms.^^;;;

It has been five years and 110 days in a row since I got rid of my smoking habit.
I was able to keep over 12-time push-ups for the thirteenth straight day
and 16-time push-ups for the fifth consecutive day.

Well, I feel it's getting warmer after the past few days with winter-like cold.
Most of the cherry blossoms on my way to the workplace have not opened yet.
Just several trees are flowering and I've started thinking the best time of them
might be this weekend, more than two weeks after the declaration of flowering.
If so, I think it might be the longest record because, usually, they are in full bloom
only one week after the declaration.
Anyway, I'm wondering if climate is getting more and more abnormal little by little.

Push-ups:16 times

Five years and 109 days in a row have passed since I broke my smoking habit.
I was able to keep 16-time push-ups for the fourth consecutive day and
more than 12-time push-ups for the twentieth successive day.

It has been one week since Nagoya declared the flowering of cherry blossoms,
Usually they will be in full bloom one week after the declaration,
but actually many of them are far from full bloom due maily to the cold.
The best time of viewing them might be next weekend.
Anyway, it is absolutely certain that I can enjoy them within one week.

Walking:a total of 100 minutes
Standing on one foot :11 minutes each
Cigarettes:0

I have succeeded in preventing myself from smoking for five years and 108 days in a row.
I was able to keep 12-time push-ups for the nineteenth straight day including
the most recent three days of 16 times of them.

It's beautifully sunny with much sunshine but I still feel a little cold.
Reports say the cherry blossoms in Tsuruma Park, one of the most famous
Cherry Blossom Viewing sites in Nagoya are only 20 or 30% the full bloom.
I think the declaration of flowering in Nagoya was a little too early.
Anyway, one of the best seasons of the year has started.
